Mep3222 (864) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUL 14, 2015
Piney resin hop aroma with some floral and a Caramelized malt backing. Taste is malty with a bitter hop finish, but enough malt to balance very well. Nice dark Caramelized malt, very hoppy, very full flavored. Nice beer but feels very bold. Not sticky palate but a sipper for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not a black IPA, but a "brown" IPA. And it is that. Strong DIPA all the way around. Malty notes are more brown than black -- slightly milder. Good.

Bottle 650ml @ Hotel room, Fairfield Inn, Flushing, NY
Pours slightly hazy reddish brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, cocoa, milk chocolate, orange and citrus. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long cocoa, milk chocolate, caramel and fruity finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Very nice hoppy brown ale.

Bottle, 22oz. A hazy, brown beer topped by a dense, light beige head of moderate size. The aroma is on the malty side, with piney, resiny hops and a lovely malty touch. Cocoa, as well as roasted malts, some dark sugar, toffee and a bready hint. The flavor has a nice bitterness to deal with the malty sweetness there is. In fact it’s quite dry, with a nice carbonation level. Full body. Roasted malts, bread, nuts, some brown sugar and chocolate in the flavor, with a piney touch as well. Lasting finish. Pretty wonderful this one, should be in the regular lineup I think. 150606

Bottle from Craft Beer Cellar in Columbia. A little underwhelming for Avery. A tasty medium-bodied brown rather than an IPA in my book.

Bottle shared by the soaking wet Chudwick. This is an odd one. I thought it was very similar to a barley wine. It is different fo sho.

Bomber - I like bipa’s but this was off. The bitterness was too prominent. Odd.

TheCaptMatey (184) - Ohio, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Poured a dark brown with a cream head. Aroma is pine hops with caramel, toasted, and chocolate malts. Flavor is toasted and chocolated malts with a nutty character, along with citrus and simcoe hop elements. Medium to full bodied with a medium carbonation and a bitter hoppy resinous mouthfeel amd a nutty malt finish.
